THE SECOND VERMONT REPUBLIC. Is it a harebrained idea? A brilliant one? Or both? Professor Thomas Naylor argues that Vermont must secede from the nation to ensure its own survival.
He sees the U.S. an an empire -- a crumbling empire, after September 11, 2001 -- and observes that such devouring beasties never survive. Of course Naylor's hardly the first to propose secession. But hey, the more the merrier. Hm, and there's New Hampshire right next door, the future State of the Free, ripe to join in a three-state alliance with Vermont and Maine.
